I can listen to online music and play my favourite CD's via Windows Media Player 11 no problem. But when i connect upto Skype i can't hear a thing?

In Windows XP i could access the Volume control easily by clicking on Start menu --> Programs --> Accessories --> Volume control. But how on earth do i do this in Vista? how can i select the speakers or headset as mixer device? And finally how do i adjust the volumeplayback?

Hope someone can help me with this problem. Thanks all. Dorkins

In Skype choose Tools, options, sound devices.

Have done that but i also have to configure the volume control in Windows as well

Do you mean via start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Sound? Is the Vista route.

In my side,I lose my sound and find a red x over sound sound icon.

I found the following solution at click here
Download the current driver version and install it after you uninstall the old version. After uninstalling the driver and reboot it to automatically reinstall it, the audio still may not work. Amazingly though, sometimes after putting the system in hibernate mode and coming back, the audio worked.

Hope it helps if it doesn't they have other suggestions.

I had the same problem as yours.
Find the latest version of your driver, download it, uninstall your current driver and install the new one. After uninstalling the driver and reboot it to automatically reinstall it, the audio still may not work. Amazingly though, sometimes after putting the system in hibernate mode and coming back, the audio worked.

I found this solution at noaudiooutput.com
they have many suggestions
